Intel Core i7-4770 Haswell Quad-Core 3.4 GHz LGA 1150 84W BX80646I74770 Desktop Processor Intel HD Graphics
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: more than 1 year

Pros: - I originally was going to purchase the 4770k but before I purchased, I happened to notice that it did not support vt-d which I needed. I ended up going with this product and so far have not been dissappointed that I have not been able to overclock it
- Runs fast
- Turbos great
- Stays decently cool even at load
- Is great for productivity along with playing games
- Basically supports most of Intel CPU features such as vt-d

Cons: - Intel locked you into purchasing this product by not supporting vt-d on the 4770k and then later supporting it on the 4790k
- Not much that I can think of, it basically does what I need it to and fast

Other Thoughts: - I would highly recommend this product if you do not need one that you must OC

G.SKILL Ripjaws X Series 16GB (2 x 8GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Desktop Memory Model F3-1600C9D-16GXM

Pros: - Enabled XMP settings and this kit ran flawlessly
- Never gets hot
- Has been absolutely stable for a few years
- At least on my kits, you can manually set the timings and speed to match the 1866 kit
- Nice color and heatsink design
- G. Skill

Cons: - There is honestly nothing that I can think of that I did not like about this memory kit

Other Thoughts: - I would highly recommend this product to others
- I have purchased two of these kits to have a total of 32 gb of memory (always best to purchase kits in the whole amount that you want but so far I have had zero issues with them running together)
- G. Skill did a fantastic job with these

Cooler Master Hyper 212 EVO - CPU Cooler with 120 mm PWM Fan

5 out of 5 eggs Eggcellent Purchase 06/19/2014

This review is from: Cooler Master Hyper 212 EVO - CPU Cooler with 120 mm PWM Fan

Pros: - Heatsink itself has great build quality
- Fan seems to generate enough pressure to dissipate heat
- Easy enough install
- You can move the fan up a bit to give more room for memory modules which the heatsink may overshadow
- Temperature on my i7 - 4770 (non k) has dropped by around 30 or more degrees under load from Prime95

Cons: - Heatsink still has some wiggle to it even though everything is tightened down
- Fan seems to do a good enough job; however, the appearance leaves much to be desired. It quite glossy which makes it seem cheap
- Instructions could have made clearer what the purpose was for all parts included in the kit. The rubber strips are for mounting another fan into the extra fan bracket should you wish.

Other Thoughts: The stock Intel cooler did a good enough job but I did not want my CPU to run that hot all of the time while playing games or editing videos. I made the decision to purchase this heatsink from different reviews and the price. It seems to offer a great price to performance ratio. The main step up from here is Noctua which also comes with a steep price increase which may not match the performance.
